This Valentine’s Day, instead of stuffing your face with candy hearts and sending your honey their weight in See’s assorted chocolates, why not shop local and get your significant other a gift that counts? Luckily, for Denver folk, on February 11th from 12-5, they’ll have just that chance: Denver Independent Boutiques (DIBS), will be hosting a Sweetheart Crawl for all you lovers out there. DIBS is a great network of shops that sell local, independent businesses’ and individuals’ merchandise. During the span of 5 hours DIBS shops will provide arts and crafts, DIY, and lots of treats to eat for shoppers on the prowl for the perfect gifts.
Activities include, making heart garlands at Hazel & Dewey, silkscreening at Indyink, writing sweet, sweet love letters to Denver at I Heart Denver, crafting paper flowers at Rakun, and mixing your very own body scrub at Thread. Also, play to win the “Lucky Hearts” game at Fast Geek Boutique where you could snag a $50 gift card. Sweet indeed.
Kittie Mae Millinery will have their doors wide open with their array of amazing fascinators and Megafauna will be offering up great deals as well as launching their Spring line, Mad Hatteris. They’ll also be hosting a piñata party at five. New Culture has a line of lingerie up their sleeve—perfect timing. Fabric Bliss, an awesome fabric store with bright, vibrant fabrics and yarn plus classes for all skill sets and Mona Lucero, a boutique full of beautiful, funky fashion will be participating in the crawl, too.
So put down that Garfield Valentine’s Day card and make sure to get on over to the DIBS Sweetheart Crawl with your main squeeze or some good friends (or both!) and feel the warm Denver love from 12-5 on February 11th. And be sure to stay tuned right here for the next few weeks to get to know the shops behind the crawl. You’ll also get to preview their goods over at their Krrb corners. Maybe February isn’t such a drag after-all.
